Paul McCartney gets warm welcome in Osaka

The Japanese pop scene still loves British talent, it seems, with ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney receiving a strong welcome in Osaka as he stepped off the plane with wife Nancy yesterday (November 10th ) to commence a six-day nationwide tour.

Fanatics were pleased to see that McCartney had made an effort to fit in with the local culture, donning a stylish kimono in the airport terminal that matched his trousers and shoes.

The full tour will comprise two performances in Osaka tonight and tomorrow at the Kyocera Dome, before moving onto Fukuoka at the Yafuoka! Dome and finishing with three consecutive nights at the Tokyo Dome in the capital.

It is the first time McCartney has performed in Japan since 2002, although his most recent LP proves he is still popular in the charts as it came in at number two, selling 23,000 copies in the first week.
